Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Great view

    "We enjoyed staying in this typical Tico bungalow. The view is beautiful. We could see so much vegetation and the ocean. The yard is lovely and filled with animals. We went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of birds. We even saw a sloth just down the road. The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off sandy feet. The house was clean and met our needs. It looks like the pictures posted. We had to get comfortable with the lack of glass windows however having the screens provided wonderful breezes and made us feel part of the landscape. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen has everything we needed. There are plenty of towels and two beach chairs. The house is secure with an alarm, safe and good lighting. The internet would go on and off which required us to keep resetting it. Our host Rebecca is wonderful. She has a full book with the house information and local tours and activities. She arranged several guided tours at the National Forest and Butterfly Garden. She told us the best place to park for the beach and where to eat. The house is centrally located and stores, restaurants and pharmacy are within walking distance. This is also a draw back since the road is very noisy and traffic continued until about 10 pm as well as the music at the bar across the street. We learned to adjust. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. We really enjoyed our visit."

  • Awesome place for family or group of travelers to stay!

    "As a group of seven young professionals we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Kalani. Nicole (the property manager) was incredibly helpful setting up everything we needed on the trip including transportation and a zip-line canopy tour. The house had everything we needed, and although the pool isn't huge, it's perfect to cool off in during the humid afternoons. The upstairs balcony is the perfect place to catch a sunset, or watch the monkeys in the morning. I would recommend Casa Kalani to anyone who wants a great stay in Manuel Antonio! -Will Mattingly"

  • Wonderful Stay

    "Our family of six had an incredible time staying here at Villa Manuel Antonio! Let me first say that while searching, I messaged the owner, Laurent, and asked him about public transportation availability and ease as one of my sons is on crutches. Laurent called me to let me know that the transportation was fine, but that there were stairs to our floor since we were looking at the lowest level with a small yard for my children to run around in and search for lizards. He was concerned that my son would not be able to do the stairs and wanted to let me know before I booked the villa. He sent me pictures that he took of the stairs and we decided my son would be fine and continued with our booking. It was nice to see that Laurent's concern was for our comfort and enjoyment, even at the risk of us looking elsewhere if we felt our son would have difficulty on the stairs. So, back to the review... Our villa was located on the lowest level with a small yard and a view of the Pacific and the national park. The two bedrooms have king beds and there is a fold out couch in the living room. The bathrooms are large and the villa is a great place to stay. The kitchen comes with all the hardware for preparing meals yourself. The pool also has a nice view and our kids enjoyed swimming in it. During the morning it is in the sunshine, but after lunch it begins to get some shade to offer respite from the heat of the day. Our kids enjoyed the pool everyday. We also saw monkeys, a sloth, numerous birds and some colorful lizards while at the villa. The location is phenomenal. Perched on a hilltop but only steps to the bus that runs to beaches and the park in one direction, and Quepos in the other. There is no need to rent a car, just take the bus. Taxis were also easy to hail. There are also restaurants nearby (try the Falafel Bar), as well as a Bank of Costa Rica, Economy Car Rental and a small convenience store. There was not a lot of walking to these places so it was perfect for our son. It really is an ideal location for getting to wherever you need to go. As for Laurent, he stays on the property which is such a big help for finding whatever you need. He arranges tours and transportation to San Jose or wherever. He can point you in the right direction for food, groceries or any other needs. He is very friendly and a delight to talk with. It was our pleasure to meet him. We highly recommend booking your stay with Villa Manuel Antonio. You won't regret it!"

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "The only negative thing I can say about the trip was the travel day (and I'm only complaining because I had a cranky 19 Month old with me). Other than that, the family jungle house was everything we imagined and more. The house was larger than I had expected, with each couple having their own room (and bathroom). The service was spectacular. The owner, Heather, was very helpful and accessible. She responds to emails within minutes. I would recommend using Josue, the concierge, for everything and anything. He was extremely accommodating, and always answered his phone. He set us up with a few excursions including zip-lining, a catamaran trip, and also took us on a tour of the national park. He really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our trip, and reached out to us almost daily to make sure we were ok. Roxana's cooking was second to none. We were very surprised at how good the Costa Rican cuisine was when we went out to eat, but Roxana's meals trumped everything we had at restaurants. She made enough food to feed a small army, and it was a lot less expensive than going out for meals. She handled everything else with us barely knowing she was there. I thought the best part of the house was the pool. After going to the beach all day, it was a really nice treat to come back and use the pool to cool off. It was clean, the slide was amazing, and the 3 different levels allowed everyone to enjoy it (including the baby) thoroughly. The pool was cleaned and maintained 3 times while we were there. The house has a security system which was a nice feature as well. This house was recommended to me by a friend, who told me it was paradise...I would agree and recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing and fun vacation."
